As lawyers, Schroder & Strom offer distinctively fuller representation than consultant companies. Every residential property under appeal is carefully reviewed upon intake and during the appeal process to determine the most effective case that can be made to reduce our client’s assessment. We can address difficult valuation or jurisdictional issues beyond simple SCAR hearings and take them directly to the courtroom –at no additional cost. The Firm’s successful trial reputation has led to significant tax reductions. Appeals can be taken to higher Courts in the State when necessary.

Schroder and Strom also serves as a strong supporter of taxpayer rights. The firm has fought against efforts by local municipalities to restrict access to low cost and efficient tax appeal procedures. We have fought against restrictive interpretations of tax laws which would heavily favor municipalities against taxpayers. We have exposed errors in homeowner assessments which caused them to have excessively high values (and taxes) — litigating these issues in Court. Our attorneys frequently lecture on tax law, procedure, and individual taxpayers rights, at Bar Associations, continuing education seminars for lawyers, local business associations, and homeowners organizations.

Our devotion to our residential clients’ interests coupled with our 96% success rate, has resulted in countless recommendations from satisfied clients; therefore most of our new business is referral-based.
